Default Re: Rods breaking on first use

Three times in a row. 9wt rod blanks from Batson.
All busted on the first day. One on the first cast.
I got pretty good at putting rods together though. It got the point where I'd just call up the supplier and they're overnight me a new one along with a few free components for my troubles.
